What's been happening at Health Translation SA
Enabling research to be translated into action to positively impact on the health of people

April Newsletter
Contributing to the global response to COVID-19, here at Health Translation SA we are connecting researchers, the health system, clinicians and decision makers to ensure that the South Australian COVID-19 response is well informed, effective and efficient.

The purpose of this register is to:
  • capture and promote COVID-19 research projects taking place in SA
  • support coordination and collaboration between researchers, institutions, health services and industry
  • reduce duplication of research
  • maximise impact of COVID-19 research
  • position SA for upcoming COVID-19 funding opportunities.

We are working with SAHMRI, SA Health and the Commission on Excellence and Innovation in Health to mobilise the rapid synthesis of COVID-19 evidence. This is helping to inform the planning and decision making of the SA COVID-19 Taskforce, especially the Chief Public Health Officer.

These ‘Evidence Updates’ are developed in response to specific questions from the SA COVID-19 Taskforce on a daily basis and are coordinated by Professor Caroline Miller at SAHMRI.

Involve consumers in your COVID-19 research
The community and COVID-19
Engaging consumers in projects linked to the COVID-19 response is crucial to better understand the reality and needs of those using the healthcare system and to accelerate the translation of these rapid projects into practice. If you are leading a COVID-19 project and need help getting connected with consumers, contact Agustina, our Consumer Engagement Senior Project Officer at agustina.gancia@healthtranslationsa.org.au or visit the Community Engagement in Research Toolkit.

Health Translation SA

Translating research into products and services that improve people's lives ​is rarely a linear process. Rather it is dynamic and iterative, and takes place within a complex system. Successful research translation requires a diverse skill-set beyond traditional research skills.  

This month we are launching our "Research Translation Training" page which outlines the available training in key competencies. There are many online options available which allow you to upskill whilst physically distancing.
